Dear Friends,

few news about the project

  1. The four workshops are over. According to the information I have
    the two in Smederevo and in Nardò were the most satisfying both from
    the organisative point of view and from the participants. The
    experience in Gallipoli was positive too even if the group worked in
    a very uncomfortable place (The municipality of Gallipoli and Koreja
    are responsible for this). The workshop in Pescara counted a limited
    numbers of local participants. I think the difficulties were due
    partly to the low level of engagement into the organisation of the
    workshops from all the partners of the project and partly from the
    way of selection of the participants (it should have been better if
    only one group of selection selected all the actors; but this meant
    a lot of extra costs impossible to be paid by the project). We faced
    a lot of difficulties with Albanian participants (one of them stayed
    just for few hours and decided to come back home, others used the
    visa of the project to leave and meet relatives, others never left).
    So to sum up, some partner broke the engagement incurred in Lecce
    during the committee of finding participants for the workshops. The
    difficulty comes from the fact that it is the first time that all
    the partners work together, so they look for a common way of
    working. Personally it is a challenge which engage me, even if it is
    very stressful. The workshop were useful to let people meet and get
    to know each other and to implement the meeting of ideas and
    methods, the conditio sine qua non to build up the network of
    Adriatic theatres. We asked for reports to the directors and tutors
    of the workshops and the questionnaires to the participants, so I
    will have a more detailed idea of the experience. I would like to
    have also your impression about it.
  2. What about the future? Unfortunately the meeting of the
    scientific committee on the 21st and 22nd of
    July is over. There is a situation of impasse in Regione Abruzzo due
    to the recent election of the new responsible of the culture. The
    meeting was meant to inform everybody about the next training course
    of management and marketing we thought to implement in the months
    September – October 2005 and about the purchase of technical
    requirements. But we have to wait, I will keep you informed.
  3. I remind you that in July the 20th Koreja will
    present its performance “Il pasto della tarantola in Budva and on
    the 22nd in Belgrade at SKC Studentski Kulturni Centar
    every hour from 19 to 23 o’clock. we would be glad to see you there!
